I am a semi-noob when it comes to MySQL servers since I have never had to have or set one one myself. However, I was wondering what type of server I do need to run a MySQL database. Not too sure if I would have to buy a separate VPS or if I would be able to add the server already to a dedicated OVH server.


Thanks :)

If you already have a dedicated OVH server you can just add it there.
Code:
yum install mysql-server

MySQLs make things run more smoother and quicker in my opinion for servers. As long as the coding is good for them, they can be very beneficial. Also, very cool for things like ingame stats and such.

If you are inexperienced with MySQL databases then do what Jack said, but also I advise you to install PHPMyAdmin. It's a tool that allows you to easily create and change MySQL databases in your internet browser. It's getting late so I wont put exactly how to install it, but here's a link to a tutorial on installing phpmyadmin on Linux: http://www.thegeekstuff.com/2010/09/install-phpmyadmin/ (Assuming your on Linux)

Also would highly suggest ZPanel (http://www.zpanelcp.com/)
Comes with phpMyAdmin, as well as a number of other great LAMP tools (and mail)
